Little Knitting Book - A Quick Reference
Joan Sheridan Hoover
5 sheep (excellent)
many times have you bought a new set of needles only to
get home and realize that you already had a set in that
size? Or the opposite problem - you are SURE you have a
set of #4 dpns, but you get home and there are no 4s, just
5s and 6s? Well, here is the solution - MY LITTLE KNITTING
BOOK - A Quick Reference compiled by Joan Sheridan Hoover.
This may be the best $3.00 you will ever spend on knitting
tackle. This book is only 3x5 inches - small enough to live
in your purse or knitting bag without weighing you down.
favorite features are the charts that allow you to keep
an inventory of your needles - a page for DPNs, straight
and circulars minimizes confusion. There is also a page
for your crochet hooks. This little gem has already saved
me an unnecessary needle purchase once.
very helpful information includes needle size conversion
table, yardage estimates for sweaters of infant to large
adult sizes and a foot length to shoe size list. It also
has suggestions about building a library and stocking a
knitting bag. Information about those mysterious care symbols
that appear on ball bands and garments plus basic and more
advanced tips round out the usefulness of this terrific
little booklet. Ask
your favorite LYS for it. You will be glad you did!
give it five happy little sheep!
